Top Trends Spring 2014

Its trend time again and with Spring in the air, here are 5 tops, shirts and blouses trends to look out in the 2014 Spring/Summer season.

THE SHIFT BLOUSE

This boxy style of blouse was abundant on the Spring catwalks. Often combined with one of the other Spring trends (Sheer, Cropped or Pastel) this flattering top with longer sleeves and smooth lines is the perfect transition piece. Offset the boxy shape with a pair of skinny pants and sandals for the perfect Spring look.

CLASSIC SHIRTS

The staple shirt of business women world over has had a make-over this season with designers tweaking the classic style to make it their own. Always a versatile piece, pair your shirts with everything from a high-waisted skirt to your favourite pair of jeans, tucked in or out – wear it however you want.

SHEER AND SEE-THROUGH

This trend has been around for a couple of seasons, but this season it doesn’t seem to be all about the reveal. Many designers have opted for panels of sheer or see-through fabric rather than going in for the whole hog. But whether its chiffon, mesh or lace, please make sure you leave some things to the imagination.

PASTELS

I have always thought that pastels were the quintessential Spring colour palette and it seems that the designers of the world agree with me. Soft colours littered the catwalks, reminding us all that this horrible winter has to end soon! Head-to-toe or just a splash, pastel colours will make any outfit feel that little bit more ladylike – just make sure to pick a tone that suits your colouring.

CROP TOPS

Love them or hate them, the crop top is here to stay and the Spring runways saw varying lengths of the style from the croppiest of crops, to just grazing the tops of high-waisted bottoms. This trend comes in all shapes and sizes so there is bound to be one out there for everyone. And if you just aren’t in to exposing your midriff, the crop top is great for layering.
